ServiceMaster was recommended to me by my neighbor after we had a storm that flooded us both. Luis and his crew were so kind and helped me understand every step of the mitigation process. We had our family room carpet and some walls that were wet removed and dried out within a week! Lorenzo also cleaned my couch and made it look brand new! Thank you!

We had a burst pipe in our office. Service master in Skokie tore out all the wet drywall and dried everything out. They also did the repairs and cleaned all our carpet. They did a great job with minimal interruption.

AMAZING! I dropped off 6 large area rugs, two of them had pet urine, one had water damage A previous company cleaned them and didn't get the odor or stains out, Lorenzo got the stains out and got rid of the odor, the other area rugs look great, got their vibrant colors back. Lorenzo is the rug whisperer!
